First time painters: Overcoming the fear.

At Graffiti Paintbar, our biggest challenge is convincing potential customers that they CAN paint even if they haven't lifted a paintbrush since elementary school. A typical paint session starts out with apprehension and fear of failure overhanging the studio. Instead of feeling liberated at the prospect of engaging in a creative project for which there is no right or wrong result, freedom can be foreign and scary.

Just as no two signatures are ever alike, neither will two paintings ever be the same, even when repeated by the same artist. We encourage our painters to relax and enjoy the process of mixing and adding paint to their canvases. We remind everyone that we are not in the business of selling paintings at Graffiti Paintbar, we sell the experience of painting. Each painter will have a different experience with the paint and go home with a painting uniquely their own. We make it a point to give as much individual attention and encouragement as we can at each session to make sure each experience is positive.

At every session, we consistently witness a transformation from fear and skepticism, to pride, and even astonishment, as paintings progress. By the end of each evening we have a studio full of believers discussing which painting they are going to sign up for to paint next! We rarely have a session where there isn't at least one repeat customer in the studio.
